EL GOUNA PROPERTIES
El Gouna had started as one man's search to find the most beautiful spot on the seaside to build a house and small boat jetty. Twenty five years ago Samih Sawiris, chairman of Orascom Development, El Gouna's parent company, found that beautiful spot, conveniently located just north of Hurghada on the west coast of the Red Sea. It wasn't long before Sawiris' friends, struck by the splendor of the azure waters and dramatic backdrop of mountains, asked to join him, and the town slowly blossomed into the vibrant community that it is today.
Sahl Hasheesh is a bay located on the Red Sea coast of Egypt, across from Sharm El Sheik, approximately 18 km south of Hurghada International Airport. The Sahl Hasheesh Bay is home to a number of islands and coral reefs with diving and snorkeling.
